Gamecocks use bye week to focus on recruiting

Oct. 07, 2019

Gamecock coach Will Muschamp focus last week on recruiting. With the team having last week off, he jumped at the chance to get out on the road. The Gamecocks’ 2020 class is almost complete, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some maintenance to be done, some working on kids to add and a fair amount of getting in on players in classes down the line.

 Muschamp said in his weekly teleconference. “We had some really productive days. “Monday, the entire staff, including myself, was out. And then again on Friday. A couple guys, we watched some games on Thursday night as well. Very productive.”

Over the week, the staff offered a few players, including dynamic Georgia athlete Malaki Starks and Charlotte tight end Bryson Nesbit. Muschamp was in Virginia on Friday and checked in at Episcopal High School in Alexandria. That’s where three-star safety Bryce Steele, who recently put the Gamecocks in his top 10, goes to school. Muschamp also went to the high school of four-star 2021 offensive lineman Tristan Leigh, who visited the Gamecocks in mid-September and left with an offer.

The 2020 class is almost complete with four spots still open.

Muschamp said about recruiting.  “I’m really pleased with where we are recruiting-wise. Very pleased with this class. Obviously we’ve got to finish well. We’ve got some spots left there, and we’ve got to drill down on our needs. I really like where we are.”

The group unofficially has four openings, unless someone publicly committed leaves. The group still at least likely needs another running back, linebacker and pass rusher and made the final three for versatile Valdosta tight end Jahiem Bell. At the Kentucky game, South Carolina got official visits from four-star linebacker Len’Neth Whitehead and three-star Pitt running back commit Henry Parrish. It being Georgia week, the question was posed to Muschamp — does going against the Bulldogs, as well as Clemson right near by, force him to work just a little harder in recruiting?

 Muschamp closed it out by saying. “Recruiting is hard all the time Regardless of where you are or the situation you’re in.”
